I have entity

\Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Category\Collection $categoryCollection

And I'm trying following


but this doesn't work for me. Any ideas?

  • It should work, ensure that \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Category\Collection` inject at your class . – Amit Bera Aug 3 '18 at 17:34
  • public function __construct( .... \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Category\CollectionFactory $catalogCategoryCollectionFactory, .... ) { $this->catalogCategoryCollectionFactory= $catalogCategoryCollectionFactory; } public function getMyCategoryCollection() { $categoryCollection =$this->catalogCategoryCollectionFactory->create(); $categoryCollection->addAttributeToSelect('image'); } – Amit Bera Aug 3 '18 at 17:39
  • Yes, it is injected – Dmitri Portenko Aug 3 '18 at 17:41
  • try with name file? – Amit Bera Aug 3 '18 at 17:41
  • Which type of category image you want to get. It's parent category or child category? – Rohan Hapani Aug 3 '18 at 18:10

I've done a small debug and found out that addAttributeToSelect have the second parameter

public function addAttributeToSelect($attribute, $joinType = false)

In my case catalog/frontend/flat_catalog_category configuration option was disabled. So I think for disabled flat category joinType should be true. I've added the following

\Magento\Catalog\Model\Indexer\Category\Flat\State $flatState

to the constructor. And this works for me like a charm

if ($this->flatState->isAvailable()) {
} else {
    $this->categoryCollection->addAttributeToSelect('image', true);
